As a reminder, the game each week is a 9-hole Foursome A-B-C-D Team Scramble with team prizes based on gross scores, supplemented by a Skins game.
This week we had 16 players who elected to play the “easy nine” at Palmetto, including our Club Pro Ed Bowe. The scores like most weeks were again extremely competitive with scores of 30, 31, 32, and 33 posted.
The winning score of 30 was carded by Billy Brunton, LMGA President Frank Schepis, J. D. Dempsey, and brand new LMGA member, Sonny Brownlee. Two skins were won and both went to the same team as they birdied hole numbers 15 and 18. Sounds like a great day for this foursome; and not so great for the other 3 Foursomes. And what a way to start your “LMGA career”, Sonny Brownlee, way to go!!!
All the players had a great time and enjoyed the customary complementary beverages after the match. We were glad to see that the 16 folks ignored the stifling weather conditions, and especially welcomed were our LMGA’s working members. Thanks to all who participated.
Next Wednesday, the Wednesday Evening Scramble will be at 6pm on Oakridge. LMGA welcomes all our members and especially our working members to join in and play. Our pros have added an extra measure of fun to the game and a great opportunity to get them to meet and play with LMGA members. Sign-up by calling the Oakridge Golf Shop on Wednesday August 12th from 9:00am to 3:00pm to register. And then show up before 5:45 on Wednesday evening to play. That is all there is to it; the rest will be handled by the Club Pros and the LMGA leadership. Hope to see y’all there.
